LILY’S TOUGH TIME

January 29, 2019

The SAG Awards is also a union meeting of sorts, and Lily Tomlin had the hard job of trying to make announcements to a crowd that was still taking its seats.

Before Sunday night’s telecast began, Tomlin took the stage to urge the stars in the room to donate their time and money to the charitable SAG-AFTRA Foundation.

Tomlin told the audience that Oprah Winfrey had recently volunteered, and “if Oprah can make time, so can you.”

Most were chatting and scrambling to get to their seats while Tomlin talked.

“It doesn’t matter,” Tomlin said, “I’ve played tougher rooms.”
